Aerial Acoustics?

Anyone familiar with this brand? They make a model 6T that looks interesting. Like to hear your thoughts is you have heard them or know about them.

I jonesed for a pair of 10T for some time but could never find them when I could get them.
Friend has 20T to this day that are phenomenal. If your anywhere near NC they have 6T in Raleigh.
Brand has been around for quite some time and is known for quality. While the 6T do have
pretty good mid and upper, There is just so much air two 5 1/2"s can push. The sound can get down
pretty well but it's not something your going to feel in your bones (ymmv).

In its day, the 10T were a very highly regarded and fairly expensive speaker (about $7k retail?).  I believe they were S'phile Class A.  Past few years I've seen tremendous used deals on them in the $1500 to $2000 range.  Even one cosmetically challenged pair listed for $875 that sold in one day!  Check the sold / expired history on HifiShark

The two founders were both Engineers from ADS.  Have been around over 20 years in the Greater Boston area.  If you were a fan of ADS speakers then Aerial speakers will be right up you alley. Haven't really been any new models in years.

I would be using the speakers with a subwoofer so I don't need earth shaking bass.

I had a pair of 10Ts for 10 years and loved them.  Not the prettiest speakers but they could rock when cranked and fed properly.   Ultimately, I sold them for a pair of Von Schweikert VR35 speakers that came across quite more refined and detailed than the 10Ts.   But I'll be the first to say that there are times I really miss the 10Ts.  With the right music they could engage you like no others.

I owned the 10 Tís for a few years. Very nice speaker, high build quality, rich, full & accurate sound but needs lots of power to play at realistic volumes. Minimum of 100 good watts per side. The more the better.

  The 10T's are a classic. Still are. There are many new contenders that are better just more money.

Yes, yes they are.  Great old school speakers that still kick ass!

Interested in your thoughts.

Aerial's current T series line up looks to be around 10 years old. I see reviews from Stereophile and Absolute Sound for 2012

No changes since then?
